First Nation works with SMU anthropologist to search site of former Shubenacadie Residential School

As Elizabeth McSheffrey reports, Sipekne’katik First Nation Chief Michael Sack says he hopes the team finds nothing, and that the search will help settlers understand the trauma and pain Indigenous peoples have endured at the hands of the state and Catholic Church.
